  • Introduction

    Smoking is one of the most researched risk factor round the world. It is well-known that smoking causes several damages over the people health and the economy too. These damages are showed by high health spends levels, reduction of the labor productivity lose because of the tobacco consumption during the work time and because of the earlier death of smoker mainly. Also, the private and social disparities attributable to smoking reduce the effective opportunities from people accessing to health and social services. However, the unknown about smoking cost and the overvalue benefits attributable to tobacco sales had carried to several economies to don’t apply effectives health and economic policies for the smoking control. Then, the accounting of the whole economic effect of smoking over the economy and the society in general will contribute to suggest, approve and apply effective policies to reduce the tobacco consumption and the smoking economic impact over the national economy.
